Awesome ride -and my arms feels fine!
It's been a while ..got cocky and first run and I forgot to run low gear -smacked the toptube with my knee. Haaha.
Had to pedal around the flat rocks for a while.
Then I took it.
Now I'm looking for a new rock...went for a ride down the coast.
Rode some stone on the beach. One run to the waters edge I almost endo'd into the ocean.
I'd like to call it trials, but I'm not hopping on my rear wheel (XC bike) -kinda more like extreme climbing. Right now I'm practicing slow controlled riding and hopping off the rocks. Next is the balancing on the rear wheel.
What I love about mtbs is that there are no perameters as to what you should do with them -or what you should ride.
My interests are a bit different, I fell climbing when I was young, dislike hights.
So I climb up over rocks with my bike. I master some rocks at least.
There's a few local riders who do trials -they are really advanced -I'm kinda new to it.
Older guys do urban stuff and a couple younger guys do bench\driftwood\rock hopping.
I'm a bit too much of a scaredy cat to try some of the stuff i've seen them do.
'Gravity is a harsh mistress.' Maybe with a trials
bike and the saddle lower!
